ratings to save cnn. which i doubt frankly. at any rate, that's one of the things we'll be talking about this morning here on this tuesday celebration. but first, we go out to los angeles and get all of the latest today's current news update from our good buddy jacki schechner. good morning. >> good morning, bill. the president and mitt romney are both on vacation again today but "the new york times" is reporting that romney has made plans to visit israel later this summer. the confirmation comes from president benjamin netanyahu's office. romney is meeting with other israel's leaders and the president of the palestinian authority during the short less than two day trip. it is an attempt to reach out to jewish voters and evangelical christians and beef up the foreign policy credentials which are a little slim. romney said with regard to his israeli policy, he'll do the opposite of president obama but has not been more specific as to what that means. >>> the u.s. is strengthening its u.s. military presence in the gulf to block the strait of har mouth as tensions escalates. the u.s.

can't find them. >> haley barbour is jumping into the debate saying yesterday on cnn he would release his tax returns if he were in romney's shoes. all of this along with the obama campaigns attacks on outsourcing under bain capital has romney working to put itself on the offensive. a new web site calling obama the real outsourcer in chief. the web site obama nomics said he took money from the stimulus package and sent it overseas. "the washington times" reports it offers no citations or public documents. >> by contrast, stephanie cutter has used twitter to post a link defending the president's record on protecting u.s. jobs. that document gives detailed links to news articles for each and every point. we're back with more money and politics at the top of the next hour. and you can join us live in chat right now current.com/billpress. authorities found him alone and unconscious in his car after a couple of accidents outside of l.a. over the weekend. he's back in d.c. and does face felony hit and run charges for >>(narrator) we are the trailblazers, the truth seekers. we are th

. >> bill: he's not warm and fuzzy. he was on cnn with piers morgan. he asked about bush v. gore, yeah he doesn't really have any tolerance at all for people who still complain about that decision. >> that comes up all the time. my usual response is get over it. >> bill: get over it. we five of us decided who the next president is. five of us trampled the constitution, threw the u.s. electoral system out the window, get over it. and by the way don't blame me. blame al gore. >> my court didn't bring the case into the court. it was brought into the courts by al gore. he is the one who wanted courts to decide the question. richard nixon thought that he had lost the election because of chicago, he chose not to bring it into the courts. >> bill: what was wrong with al gore thinking the courts might decide a case of law. that statement is to just unbelievable! >> there is a certain level of decorum that you would expect from a supreme court justice. >> bill: not from antonin scalia. >> get over it. that's his defense. get over it! >> bill: get over it. we're in charge. that's what he's sayin

, ehud barak the defense minister of israel was on cnn. wolf blitzer interviewed him and asked him directly about how good a friend has barack obama been? i want you to listen to that. it starts with wolf blitzer, of course. >> how would you describe the relationship today? >> i think that from my point of view as defense minister, there are extremely good -- extremely deep and profound. i can see administrations on both sides of political aisle deeply supporting the state it supports feeding among american people. they should tell you that this administration under president obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that i can remember in the past. >> bill: more than any other president in the past. barack obama. so what is this deal that obama's not strong enough supporter of israel? >> israeli officials have said similar statements in the past couple of years. the best friend israel's ever had. strong support. of course, we give them about $3 billion a year in aid. we're not pressuring them to come to a deal with the palestinians. we're backing them up in iran.
